She will work up to 10 hours per week from the chamber office at the Imlay City Hall, answering telephone calls and ensuring that normal chamber operations take place.

Wilson temporarily succeeds Sally Reinhardt who resigned as chamber executive director on Oct. 27.

"I'm happy to help out for the short term," said Wilson, adding that she is not interested in assuming full-time duties. "I'll be around to respond to phone calls and answer questions."

The chamber is in the midst of planning its annual Dinner-Dance on Sat., Dec. 1 at 7 p.m. at Country Side Banquet Hall.

During the event, the 2007 Citizen of the Year, Merit Award and Service Organization Award winners will be announced.

The $35 per-person ticket price includes dinner, an open bar and entertainment provided by Sound Decision, featuring Brian Conrad.

Reinhardt said Tuesday morning that she will be available for a few extra days to assist Wilson during the transition process.

"Sally has done a great job of setting things up for the rest of the year," said Wilson. "It shouldn't be difficult to tie up the loose ends."

In addition to the upcoming Dinner-Dance, the chamber-sponsored Christmas Parade is set for Fri., Nov. 30 at 6 p.m., which kicks off Customer Appreciation sales and activities at participating merchants.
